The Light Microscopy Facility (LMF) offers a collection of state-of-the-art light microscopy equipment and image processing tools. The LMF is administrated by the Stelzer group. It aims to improve communication between users and producers of high-end microscopy technology and to support in-house scientists and visitors in using light microscopy methods for their research.
The LMF presently manages several top-of-the-line microscope systems, including light-sheet based microscopy and High-Content Screening microscopes as well as image analysis workstations. The LMF staff will be of assistance to the users (BMLS and CEF members, visitors) and guide them through the microscopic imaging process: project planning, sample preparation, staining, microscope selection and use, image processing, presentation, data transfer and storage. There is a strong link to industrial partners for the development of remote software and the pre-evaluation of commercial equipment.
